So, I'm having a bit more success on my canvases than my art journal - but I'm still having fun learning new techniques.  Holy cow - I'm following like 6 new art journaling blogs - so that's fun!

Here's a journal page I made this week after thinking about our 16th wedding anniversary:

I'm pretty happy with the background. Kind of reminds me of a chalkboard AND Venetian plaster at the same time.  I just took black and white acrylic paints and then dragged them around with an old gift card.

I added strips of washi tap and then swipes of more paint using my finger.  Added some Memory Box hearts too.  You can't tell from the picture - but the heart in the lower center of picture is actually a wood heart with glitter glued to it. Looks pretty neat in person as the 'dot' to the "i"

I looked through my stash and found these postage stamp stickers.  I was limited on what I had - so I was trying to have it read "2-15-13"

For fun - I added a Studio G bride and quickly colored her in with a white gel pen!

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
